Names -> Cool Band Names -> D, Page 6

Whenever I hear a cool phrase somewhere, I like to exclaim "That would make a cool band name". This page is a list of such names.

I can not verify whether these names have been taken yet or not. If your band happens to already use one of these names sorry. If you want to use a name you see here, you'll need to verify it's not already in use.

Submitted by:
Downward Spiral My friends and I were thinking of names for our band and we hit upon Downward Spiral. The next day I went to a record store and I find out it's a Nine Inch Nails album. I love NIN, but my friends don't, so we had to pass it up. This would be a great name for (obviously) a NIN tribute band, a depressed rock group, or even a girl group!  mo
Dr. Glove KInda like mr. hand job except less obvious Ariella
Dr. Graffiti and The Men's Room Simon and Garfunkel got it wrong in their classic song "The Sounds of Silence" - the words of the prophets are not written only on the subway walls.....check out any men's room..... Johnny D
Dr. Hans Jerkov And His Magnificent Gecko Chokers Comprised of two trumpet polishing metaphors from the many I have been exposed to!  false pretence
The Dr. Pepper Burgers This is for a band who one or more of the members has really weird hearing and tends to make up/mix up words. I myself have the above requirements and I was at a friends party and talking to another friend when I asked him "What's a Dr. Pepper burger?" when he really said something about music.  Litestar
Dr. Wagner Jr. 90% of Mexican Wrestlers, or Luchadors, have names that would be totally sweet for rock groups. I choose Dr. Wagner Jr., the mad doctor of the CMLL. Chris Awesome
Draco Daemon A good stage name for someone in a metal band. Rachel
Dracula's Daughter I borrowed it from an old horror movie. This would be a great name for a goth/emo band. If you like that kind of music.  Edward
Drag Kings Well its not drag queens so you are not gay or anything. It's different and it's just a pretty cool name for a band. Nosnhoj
DRAGGINZ FYRE i was trying to think of a name for my band and this what i came up with...i had just seen Styx and was playing around with words spelled with a Y. Coincidentally if you mis-spell STYX you could name your band XYST (exist) mutheatreq
Dragon Blood I just thought it would be cool to have or you could use raining bat blood T-PRENDY
Dragonfly Why hasn't some folk-rock thought of this? Donovan
DragonWindow I combined window, which is a word that I like, with dragon. Dragons are cool nvvihg
Drain Bamage just reverse the b and the d and you get brain damage, cool huh? Chris
Drain The Bloom two nirvana songs combined....need i say more? indeed
Drape Effect I like it cause it's different and it sort of reflects on someone who isn't being open with others or w/e. I dont know it has alot of meaning to me. Well my friend liked the word Drape and I thought of it as a 'cover up' and then effect was it 'happening' or taking place. Really hard to explain.  PiNK LadiE
Drayage Charge A drayage charge is another term for a delivery charge or a charge levied for use of a cart (or drayer). Think about all that equipment a group has to carry to venues around the world. Not a pretty sight.  hummer
Dread Pirate Rockers From a character in the movie "The Princess Bride", Dread Pirate Roberts. RevengeFromMars YouTube
Dread Pram If you don't know, pram is short for perambulator, a primarily-British term for a baby carriage. There's something goth about those old-timey baby carriages. Peter, Simon, and Toy
Dreadbolt Lock An infusion of "dreadlock" and "deadbolt lock." Possibly good for a band with dreadlocked band members Door into Summer
Dream Theater "Dream Theater" is the best description for the kind of music they make, it just fits perfectly. Adds a lot of mystery. The depth of their playing and writing really makes you think of some ancient theater show. Plus, they are musicians you can dream of! ttphone
Dreams Frozen Solid Sorry, people. This one's not up for grabs. It's my band but since it's such a rad name for a Punk/ Emo band, I thought I'd put it on here. Every time I've tried to do something (well almost every time) I've messed up. All my dreams have been frozen. Get it? Dreams Frozen Solid. Matt
Drenched Ethel I thought of a lonely lady in a full length leather jacket coming out of a bar late at night , very drunk and thinking of a lost love as a storm began to envelope her. erik walker
Dress Code Violation I was in the hallway at school and my principal started yelling "Dress Code Violation" like a psycho...good times, good times Sara
Dreya's Mom coz it is my daughters name Andreya and i sing back up for a band and if i ever get my own that is what it is going to be called gloira
Dried Snot I heard somewhere on the radio that this was what an R & B artist's former girlfriend said he smelled like. The jock was puzzled; he asked, "What does dried snot smell like?!!" newave
Drink Toilet Water It would make a great name for a pop/punk band. It was my nickname in fourth grade--some really mean queen bee named Ilona nicknamed me it because my last name (Bevilacqua) means "drink water" in Italian, and my first name shortened would be "loo", which means toilet water. So, there you have it! Drink Toilet Water! QueenOrangeSoda
Drinker The Dinosaur There actually is a dinosaur named "Drinker", with its uncharacteristic dinosaur name. Its name comes from the middle name of paleontologist Edward Drinker Cope D. Melody Dole, MD
A Drinking Man's Sex Symbol A play on the phrase "A Thinking Man's Sex Symbol", starring a band whose members all dated overweight or ugly people. less
Drive by Punch It's the name of a local band and I can just picture these guys leaning out a car window doing a drive by...punch (hehe)--that'd be a funny album cover. kasuald0rk
The Drive Home i was on a drive home thinking about stuff and thought of it. used it for my band for a week or two but then they decided they wanted something else. so i came up with flatline. other good ones would be Fallout, The Weak, and Something More Strange Flatline
Drive So Far Away I was listening to Blue October and this came up. I thought it might be a cool name. Travis
Driving Inferno It's hot because it brings to mind a raging fire or complex sounds that intermesh into a force that destroys and tears down the old to make way for new life.  JW
Driving Jones From Janice I dreamed I was in a rock bank. I sucked a playing the guitar but this was the name of the band I was in. It sounds kinda cool. Scoop
Driving Kno-how Well I am not old enough to drive but I have enogh "Kno-how" to do it. Althogh thats sounds lame for a band..pretty cool! Minty
Dro-Gun Saw it written in a textbook. Cool name for a rap group. Snipe
The Droogs If you've seen Stanley Kubrick's: "A Clockwork Orange," this name speaks volumes to you. But if not, its Russian for "friends." Burgess uses a lot of Russian+slang in the book, possible alternative would be "Droogies," many people would misinterpret this as meaning "drugs." Oh well! ...people! Goodolarchie
The Drop Pockets It's a joke my friends and I play on people. When someone passes by, you say "You dropped your pocket!" And they turn around and look. It's hilarious. How the heck can you drop your pocket? rachel
Drop the Y Well. I has two meanings. 1) is that don't ask any questions and 2) like when you are making something plural, drop the Y. We will probaly use it for our band. punkrokr0578
Drop Your Weapon It came to me while thinking of nonsense. (as I usually do) I thought, hey, it could make a good band name. Shido
Dropdead Twice What my mother-in-law said to my father-in-law before they broke up. Sounds punk to me Ted
Dropping The Soap Inside joke with a few friends from school. Way too explicit for me to explain the meeting... Junior
Drop~Down I think the band name Drop~Down is really cool, but I don' really know why. It reminds me of dropping dead, though. I was trying to think of a band name for my band and randomly looked through a computer manual (don't ask me why). I found this and we used it. *Please don't steal it.* Crawford
Drosophila One of my first internet nicknames was drosophila. Few people actually knew it is the scientific name for 'fruit fly'. I was asked frequenly if I had a band and where I came up with the name drosophila. Mercy
Drowning Lesson It just sounds like one of those cool punk bands that your friends talk about and you just want to hear them. lu lu
The Drowning Trouts its a semi oxymoron and i was hyper when i thought of it...pretty cool, eh? DREW
Drug Store Thieves When addicts attack, old people beware! Thanks to our sponsors, CVS, Walgreens, and Pharmor. http://www.DSTrocks.com Sam
Drug Users Imagine what the band that plays before you would tell their family and friends "Yeah, we're supporting drug users" Danny McNeill
Drugstore Masiah Symbolizes the pharmacist's occupation due to the fact you can get some kick in drugs by prescription! billy
Druncle Bud I have a uncle thats name is Bud and he is a drunk that spends at least 40 hours a week in a bar so thats what we call him. matt
The Drunk Math Teachers This would be a good band name for a band that is made of math teachers. If that is possible. Ryan C.
Drunken Earth Abortion Texture Hope Taken from a band name generator based of the acronym "DEATH" JeReMy
The Drunken Fish I thought this name might be cool cause maybe you would be in a punk rock band. The symbol of this band would be the Christian fish with X's on his eyes and vomit near where his mouth would be. Mr. T
The Drunken Nuns I was trying to think of a name for my own band, and this one somehow popped into my head. I think it would be a great name for a "rockabilly" all girl band. Hailey
Drunken Six When I was doing a math problem once, I drew a number six rather sloppily, and one of my parents commented that it looked 'drunk.' I thought that would make a great name for a band. Larcen Tyler
Dry Chemicals We were naming random made up band names at lunch time one day. I looked at the fire hydrant and it said, "Danger: Dry Chemicals". I thought it was a cool Punk/Rock name. Liam (The guy in the bright orange jacket)
Dry Forks Dry Forks is a city name in Alabama. Drey
Dry Ice I thought it was cool because ice is made of water, so it's not dry. But also the actual dry ice chemically stuff makes a fog, so that's pretty cool. I think the band I'm in now is going to use it. Gracie W
DryWall Just looking around the room and thought it up..... I think it's pretty tight. John Foster
DSFA "DSFA, what does it stand for?" "It doesn't stand for anything" haha, DSFA, it literally Doesn't Stand For Anything Andy B
Duc Tayped Zombies Me and some people were hanging out and I had a shirt on that said "Duck Tape" with a duck taped to a wall, and I also had the RPG game "Zombies" with me. I combined the two, and changed the spelling of Duck Tape because of copyright issues. Thunderbolt
Duck Butter It sounds lurid and of course, it is. It's southern slang for smegma. Although that in and of itself is gross, it kind of has a sexy ring to it. tim healy
Duck Hunt The title of one of the first games released for the NES. They could do hard rock remixes of old Nintendo games, much like the Minibosses. Olvan The Terrible
Duck Tape It was the name that Blink 182 originally used when they FIRST started out. Nobody knew them back then, they were just another high-school band. Later they changed their name to Figure 8. That ones a good name as well! Calista

Duck'd The name of my company that makes stuff out of duct tape. Spongebob SquarePants's Lady Friend
Ducks In Reverse Me and my friend Brittany came up w/this when we were going on a walk. There was a little boy on a scooter thing quacking like a duck then he started backing up and going "beep beep beep". So I go..."Ducks in Reverse". Thats a cool band name. And Brittany's like "Yeah it is!! Thats gonna be our band name! Ducks In Reverse!" So it stuck. Squatt
Ducks On Quack I'm not in a band but I just thought of it. It's a great play on words too. I think it would be great for a rock/pop band. i forgots
Ducks Under Ice As many people know, this is from "The Catcher in the Rye" where Holden Caulfield is wondering where the ducks go when winter comes. It sorta describes our ska/punk/emo/core sound. Biscuit McGee
Ducttape Bandages From looking at a list of uses for duct tape, which suggested using it as a band-aid for really big cuts. That really amused me for some reason. Subject to Change
Dude On Fire When I put guitar hero world tour for the first time the randomized band name was this and when the logo came out it had a teddy bear on fire. I thought the logo went with the name Albert
Dude's Old Car My sister tells me that her favorite movie line is "Hey, isn't that Dude's old car?" She can't remember where it's from, though.  El Davo
Duderonomy It would be a good name for surf-christian rock band. Rachel
Dudes From Asflynx It was a book I read. Dudes from Pluto

DUFI Means "Dance, You F****** Idiots" Maybe for an alternative/dance band...first album could be "Two Left Feet", first single, "Spastic Twitching" Syntania

Dumphole Just another alternative to "anus". marfanXproxy
Dumpster Baby It hurts, but you can't look away........ Johnny Utah
Duodenum Pronounced Doo-odd-numb. It's a part of the large intestines, i think. I learned it in my junior year of high school in my anatomy class. I thought is was such a cool word and name for a band now and 4 years later i still haven't gotten it out of my head. Just the way it looks is cool and then you say it and WOW the pronounciation is even cool! Cristy
The Duplicates The editor doesn't like duplicate name entries, but what about a rock band named The Duplicates? Of course they will try to duplicate original songs. Mark Mywerd

I was like, but anyone could walk in! Then she said, "Well, I'll just leave a note then: Rapists go away!" The Dutch part comes from an aborted game of Trivial Pursuit. Kristina
Duval's Finest This is kool, because it would be the only band( rock) from duval.. It would be all Ghetto Girls who can reallt throw down and shake what there mommas gave them.

Dying Lachesi We were desperate for something that wasn't too "The Blood Of The Velvet Moon, Of The Black Rose Vampire of Vampirya in TransTransylvania" TM, in brevis the typical bulls*** you get out of Goth/Metal bands. I was reading something about the Greek myth of the three Old Hags who Thread and Cut our destiny, and then it just popped that if one of them was to die, we'd have no destiny, so here goes. I think Lachesi is the one who actually knits the thread, but that was just a coincidence, it was just the name that I liked the most. By the way, the other two are Atropo and Cloto. Krystal
